Unless someone else steps forward (maybe grinder?), I'm going to take over maintenance of Crypt::SSLeay to apply some of the outstanding patches. If you are instereted, please let us know on modules AT perl DOT org.
The first releases will be developer releases to make sure I don't break anything, and along the way I'll get it into a public repository of some sort so other people can work on it.
Somewhere in my rich fantasy life I have this notion of someone sponsoring me to just fix bugs in modules with absent authors.
